Expancel® Microspheres will help you to improve bulk or reduce grammage keeping the caliper of your board

If you suffer from low production capacity due to limitations in steam consumption Expancel® microspheres can improve your situation. It can also help you reduce the paper losses during your board manufacturing by improving the caliper control on the machine.

Expancel® microspheres is used in board applications where a high bulk is needed. It will improve the bulk and bending stiffness of the board, 1% of Expancel® microspheres can increase the bulk by up to 25%. These effects are achieved when Expancel® slurry, added to the wet-end of the board machine, expands in the drying section, giving an increased bulk of the board. Expancel® slurry can also be coated with a binder on the surface of board or paper to provide anti-slip properties.

Levasil® colloidal silica to enhance the frictional and printing properties of board stock

Colloidal silica can be used to create an anti-slip surface on paper and packing materials. The higher coefficient of static friction makes stacking and handling of finished products simpler and more efficient.

When used to coat packaging materials, colloidal silica produces a porous surface coating that readily accepts water-based inks. This coating significantly improves the printability on these products – printed images are crisper and clearer, and the ink is less likely to bleed.

Eka® HP - Hydrogen peroxide for aseptic packaging

Our hydrogen peroxide is produced specifically for use in aseptic packaging machines; it is an effective product to sterilize the inside of an aseptic packaging container prior to filling - for bath and spray treatments.
